NHAA's 75th Anniversary Celebration

The New Hampshire Art Association is a non-profit art association founded in 1940, and as such is one of the oldest statewide art associations in the country. Currently there are over 275 juried members that include; painters, photographers, printmakers, sculptors, and other fine artists living and working regionally.

Twenty-five thousand people per year engage with NHAA's Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery as well as their off-site exhibitions. Although visitors are primarily from New England, the NHAA has a significant international audience.

The New Hampshire Art Association connects visual artists with the public through ongoing exhibits and educational activities; in order to encourage appreciation for contemporary culture, foster creativity, and enhance community spirit.
— the New Hampshire Art Association's mission statement

The Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery hosts exhibits throughout the year, opening their new shows in conjunction with the monthly Art 'Round Town gallery art walks in downtown Portsmouth. NHAA artists exhibit their work at the Prescott Park Arts Festival, Seacoast Repertory Theatre, the Concord Chamber of Commerce, as well as Pop-Up Galleries around the state. Many events are linked to activities focused around community participation.
